I've recently noticed that the .NET Framework Version 3.0 (which is currently in the late beta stage) is unlikely to run on anything earlier than Windows XP SP2. The likely consequence of this is that some software developed over the next couple of years will not run on Windows 2000. This is probably early notice to business to move on from Windows 2000.

There seems to be a growing interest in the media of ransomware. Ransomware is malware (viruses and the like) that encrypts the victim's data so that they can't access it. The perpetrator then offers a ransom to recover it for them.

I understand from IT Week (21st August 2006) that there has been an 8% drop from last year in the number of FE students taking IT or Computing A-levels. Apparently only 20,000 students took IT-related A-levels this year in comparison to some 28,000 in 2003.

I couldn't really let 12th August 2006 pass without noting it to be 25th Birthday of the original IBM PC, which arguably kicked off the PC revolution in business.

I was interested to read the BBC article highlighting the concerns of Professor Antonia Jones and her team at Cardiff University regarding the security of the HSBC Online Banking Web Site, particularly in light of my earlier blog entry.

The announcement this week by Intel of their new multi-core processor technology is clearly the beginning of the end for the venerable Pentium processor, which was introduced as far back as 1993.

Multi-core processors offer a considerable leap in power and it will be interesting to see how software developers take advantage of this new power in the future.

I believe that a really useful administrative facility that should be built into Microsoft Windows is the ability to login as a user by using an administrator's credentials.
